According to Crain’s New York Business, which first reported on the news, rents for the firm’s space were in the high $80s per square foot. The deal is for 15 years, the Bryan Cave spokeswoman told CO. The law firm “will be undertaking a complete renovation of our space,” she said, noting it will become a “beautiful new work environment.”

Other tenants in Vornado Realty Trust‘s 41-story, 2.1-million-square-foot building office tower include investment management firm Neuberger Berman, with its global headquartersCushman & Wakefield (CWK), which last month expanded its offices to more than 200,000 square feet, and Morgan Stanley (MS).

Glen Weiss and Edward Riguardi of Vornado represented the landlord in-house. Lewis Miller’s team at CBRE represented Bryan Cave, the law firm’s spokeswoman said. A spokesman for Vornado declined to comment and a spokeswoman for CBRE didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
